YOLANDA H. ALVAREZ, 61, of Las Cruces entered eternal life Monday, September 30, 2013 at Mountain View Regional Medical Center surrounded by her loving family. She was born November 30, 1951 in Las Cruces to Arturo and Julia Hinojos Alvarez. A 1969 graduate of Mayfield High School, Yolanda attended Cosmetology School and became a Licensed Cosmetologist. She furthered her studies and became a Certified Welder. Yolanda was employed at New Mexico State University for over ten years in the food service; she was a member of the Brown Berets of Las Cruces and fought vigorously to have schools provide free lunch to students.

Those left to mourn her passing include a son, Michael Alvarez and wife Cynthia Alvarez of Las Cruces; a brother, Bobby Corona of Tucson, Arizona; three sisters, Josie Guzman also of Las Cruces, Jenny Corona of Tucson, Arizona and Mary Lou Vargas of El Paso, Texas. Other survivors include three grandchildren, Andrew Baldonado, Michael Angelo and Klarrisa Alvarez; three great grandchildren, Nakius Baldonado, Ceriah and Jayden Alvarez as well as numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents.

At Yolanda's request cremation will take place and a Celebration of Life Service will be held Saturday, October 5, 2013 at 1 PM in the La Mesa Community Church in La Mesa with Pastor Ruben Valenzuela officiating.

Her maiden name could be Alvarez but her brothers last names are Corona. I am assuming they put the wrong last name on the parents. 
Cremated, Location of ashes is unknown.
